Near Foundation is hiring full-time interns for multiple teams, including our Near Horizon and Business Development teams. Intern positions will be anywhere from 3-6 months in duration.

The NEAR Horizon team and BD teams drive awareness and adoption by attracting great founders and startup teams to build on NEAR and accelerating those teams to build successful products and services. We are an international team that understands the technology and works well with product, technical, and business stakeholders.

The intern role on the Horizon team will support the Tech Lead and Program Managers with partnership management (accelerators, VCs, and corporate partners) and founder support management. An engineering or technical background is ideal, as founder support will require understanding their technical challenges and directing them to the correct resource.

Our BD intern roles will support the Head of BD, Blockchain Success, and GM of SE Asia, Middle, East, and India in driving the functional strategy and delivering high performance of the partner acquisition & management efforts.

The right fit for these positions should be comfortable operating in a dynamic, entrepreneurial, and fast-paced environment with little structure and supervision.
